As a parent or carer you can play a vital role in your child's education, including homework.

 

As well as the weekly homework task, your child is expected to learn spellings from a weekly list. Learning the spellings for just a short time each day is more effective than leaving it all to the last minute.

 

Reading on a daily basis is also expected. Reading aloud with an adult is important throughout the primary years. Even if your child is a fluent reader, having a discussion about the story (for example, the characters' personalities and actions, the wow words used by the author) is a valuable way to develop reading skills.

 

Homework

 

For children in Year 1 to Year 6, practising times tables is also extremely important: by the end of Year 4, children should have a rapid recall of times tables facts and also be able to say the division facts too eg 7x8=56. Rapid recall should be within around five seconds they should not have to count through the tables facts to get there! Bronze, Silver and Gold level.
